Conference- Climate Friendly Parks Workshop

MGI’s Dr. Ava Maxam’s presentation on Vulnerable Coastlines at the Climate Friendly Parks Workshop on April 14 in Runaway Bay. This workshop was put on by the Discovery Bay Marine Lab and the US Department of the Interior. The presentation addressed the Implications of Sea Level Rise (SLR) in Jamaica and aimed to highlight spatial analysis in:

  • Depicting the hazards likely from climate change SLR impacts
  • Depicting impacts due to SLR on Jamaica's shoreline
  • Presenting scenarios of areas-at-risk due to SLR

The following images are from the presentation.
